HC Deb 05 February 1985 vol 72 c522W
Mr. Foulkes

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the average weekly Civil Service pension; and what percentage of Civil Service pensioners are on or below this average.

Mr. Hayhoe

The average pension in payment to retired civil servants is just under £48 a week. It is not possible to calculate from the available statistics what percentage of retired civil servants are on or below this average. However, taking retired civil servants together with the dependants of ex-civil servants the average weekly pension is £41. Some two-thirds of Civil Service pensioners on that definition are on or below this average.
